COLAC and district children can start posting their letters to Santa before the jolly man in red gets too busy in the lead-up to December 25.
Santa and his helpers will be gearing up his sleigh and answering letters from children throughout the Colac region and across the world.
Australia Post’s Christine Corbett says children will receive a personalised response direct from the North Pole if they address their letters to Santa, North Pole, 9999 and mail them at the Colac post office.
“Be sure to include your full name and address, along with a stamped envelope so Santa knows where to send his reply,” Ms Corbett said.
“Last year children sent more than 150,000 letters to Santa.
“Santa has heard that there have been many well-behaved children in south Victoria this year, so I’m encouraging them all to make sure they write their letters and wish lists as soon as possible so that he has plenty of time before Christmas to read and respond to them,” Ms Corbett said.
The Colac Herald is also getting ready to prepare its annual Christmas Lights map and an entry form is on page 24 of today’s edition.
Colac and district residents can enter the Otway Business Inc Christmas Lights Competition or just register their address on a touring map which the Colac Herald will publish after entries close next week.
